    Op, I used a couple before I found one that worked for us. I think the Nan Ha is a good place to start though because it's meant to be a lot easier for them to digest.

    My daughter drinks s26 ar - it's a thicker formula as she suffers from reflux. She is very settled and has never suffered constipation or any other problems. I say this because many websites with forums say s26 causes constipation. I think it's really up to the individual kid and what works for them.

    Exactley this. DS had reflux n it was a life saver then when it settled down we just used normal S26 and he was fine....he has never been constipated in his whole eight months. As pp have said every baby is different so it may be hit and miss but you will find what works for your bubba And some take whatever formula and have no problems. Good luck

    My apologies OP I didn't realize (kids got me up at 4:50am) that this was a bottle= formula section, my brain actually didnt click to that fact i think i sort of thought of a bottle as more of a method rather than what you put in it...I know you have a few posts in the breastfeeding section and didn't obviously think very hard first.

    Cakeyloaf, this happens all the time, people posting in the wrong section, instead of being sarcastic perhaps just point out the simple fact that this is the bottlefeeding section or if you feel uncomfortable or unable to do just that you could just report my post.

    ______

    I'll bow out now, once again my apologies :handshake:

    Thanks purplecat - I am going to contact the Aba today. Yes I am expressing 100mls per day and bub is feeding 2-4 hourly during the day so the 100mls is in addition to bubs feeds. Based on what the CHN said I didnt gauge the 100mls per day as enough but since this thread is in the bottle feeding topic I will need to update the other thread.

    No offense taken, I do have another thread in the bf topic going so can understand the confusion. Come on people lets just support one another in each others choices. Ebm is another interesting option however if not mentioned in the most appropriate thread.

    It's the bottle feeding section, not the formula feeding section - EBM is given in a bottle isn't it?

    OP - I gave my daughter bellamy's organic.

    I ff my first bub and used s26 original and he was very constipated. Now normally he suffers from constipation and I want to try very hard to heighten this with second bub.

    Our paed did tell me the higher the iron content the more likely it is to constipate. Also the "gold" versions of formula have a higher iron content?

    So I am wondering how the iron content in each of the formulas you have mentioned measure up?

    I like the idea of the Bellamys organic as we have a Woollies here and it is accessible. I wonder if being organic is still has all of the essential nutrients that bub needs?
